    i have a rooted Droid X running the 2.2 leak. i want to remove apps by renaming them to .bak files but i can't seem to do it with root explorer. can someone help me manually rename the files by providing a list of commant prompt inputs? any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Did you cycle R/W R/O in the upper right part of the screen? I had no problems adding .bak to apps I didn't want with Root Explorer.

    You won't be able to edit stuff in Root Explorer till you set to to R/W (read and write)

    Thats weird... thats what root does, it gives you r/w privileges in System.
